COUIMMALL GOP said convinced president a liability CHICAGO (Reuter) Re- publican delegates headed home Sunday after their biggest conference this year, with many convinced the party is steering away from President Nixon. A senior Republican close to the Nixon administration, asked by a party worker at a private meeting why Nixon has not resigned in the interests of the party, replied: "Hold tight, he will be impeached." Vice-president Gerald Ford the words of a senior party giant step away from White House with a billet attack on Nixon's 1972 re-election committee, members of which were deeply involved in the Watergate political espionage scandal. Ford was loudly applauded when he told the conference: "The political lesson of Watergate is again must Americans allow an arrogant, elite guard of political adolescents like Creep (Committee to Re-elect the President) to bypass the regular party organizations and dictate the terms of a national election." It was one of the few times a senior Republican has referred to committee by the acronym "Creep." Former New York governor Nelson Rockefeller, a probable presidential contender in 1976, told the conference the Nixon president's possible impeachment by the House of Representatives through his association with be solved by constitutional means. But he told a news conference that Nixon has to share responsi- bility for Watergate for appointing dishonest officials. Senator Charles Percy of Il- linois, a party liberal who has declared his serious interest in seeking the presidency of the United States, said he had an ominous feeling Nixon will stand trial before the Senate later this year. "The die is pretty much he told a news confer- ence. "The president is pre- occupied with self- preservation right now." The strongest defence of the president at the conference, attended by delegates from 13 central states, came from California Gov. Ronald Reagan, another possible presidential contender in 1976. Some delegates (from both the right and liberal wings of the party felt Ford, who has insisted he does not intend being a candidate for political office in 1876, was firing the first shots in his own presidential campaign. Many of the Republicans who came here for guidance on the question of whether the party would have to desert the president if it wanted to win elections in November, apparently went home convinced it must do so, representatives, of party leaders who toured state dele- gates rooms reported. The representatives said many Republicans told them they feel the party can no longer win elections by supporting the president. insulting 'Newfie' said Hon.

Great train debate to end OTTAWA (CP) The great train debate is expected to highball to completion this week, finally enabling the government to square accounts with Canadian National Railways. It has been a long haul for Kidnap remains mystery MEXICO CITY (CP) The disappearance of United States Vice-Consul John Patterson in Hermosillo, northern Mexico, remained a mystery today after several leads turned out to be false. Sources said fingerprints on a car in which the 31-year-old diplomat was seen driving off with another American turned out to be Patterson's. The identity of the other American remained a mystery. The sources said police searched Patterson's office desk and found a paper napkin with the figure written twice on it. The two figures added up to the ransom of mentioned in a note found at the door of the U.S. consulate soon after Patterson disappeared. But the sources said his colleagues told investigators that Patterson jotted down the figures during business discussion on cattle. Patterson's wife Ann flew to Tucson, Ariz., and raised half of the ransom but the kidnappers did not appear at two places mentioned in the note. the annual CNR financing bill, originally introduced more than a year ago and reintroduced in the current session of Parliament after the House ran out of time in the last session. Opposition critics have side- tracked the bill continually, saying the Crown corporation is shoddily and inefficiently run. But the opposition seems to have run out of steam on the bill and there is nothing delaying it now except second reading of the government competition bill. The bill authorizes CN capital expenditures totalling million in 1973 and million in the first six months of 1974. Last' year's spending included million for road property, million for branch lines, million for equipment, million for telecommunications, million for CN Tower Ltd., million for hotels and million for investment in affiliates It also enables CN to contract for up to million in new equipment, to be paid for after 1973. Classic economics worked OTTAWA (CP) Prime Minister Trudeau returned to classical economics last week in getting provincial premiers started on their negotiations that led to a new national price for domestic crude oil. On the CTV program Question Period, he explained Sunday that he had each of the provincial leaders write on a slip of paper the price each sought for a barrel of domestic crude in an attempt to establish high and low limits to the discussion. He called it the principle of "les prix crier ressort, you know, somebody yells out a price and if there are no takers somebody else will yell out a lower price arid, you know, yelling prices around and finally they arrive at something." 12 die in B.C. mishaps At least 12 persons were killed in accidents in British Columbia on the weekend, all of them in traffic accidents.

SOUTHERN ALBERTA GALLERY ASSOCIATION jm _ M ,j rt i II i DMlflGI Afl vMWrjr IM IfeA I Aaui HI mv bvnwrmBw Biiy _ New Library Theatre Room April 2nd p.m. Separatists want English language rights eliminated in Quebec MONTREAL (CP) Le Devoir says that when the language issue comes up for debate in the national assembly, the Parti Quebecois will demand repeal of a section of the British North America Act which guarantees the use of both French and English in Quebec's courts and legislature. In a report from Montreal the newspaper quotes Claude Charron, member of the National Assembly for Montreal-Saint Jacques, as saying the party will not recognize the official status of French in Quebec unless English loses the status guaranteed by Article 133 of the BNA Act. The PQ would ask that French be made Quebec's language, meaning that all courts, public offices, municipalities, school boards, hospitals and government-owned corporations would use French only and publish all documents only in French. Mr. Charron said the PQ recognizes the need for a five-year transition period to allow institutions to swiu.h from French to English and if Article1133 is repealed the party would grant English-speaking members of the National Assembly and of the legal profession the privilege of using their own language. The report says the PQ wants the right of a parent to choose his child's language of instruction abolished, and wants to switch businesses to using French through legislation and by exerting pressure through the awarding of contracts and grants. Tory 'fishing9 expedition wild goose chase GANDER, Nfld. (CP) Newfoundland's four Conservative MPs and party leader Robert Stanfield went out to spy on foreign fishing vessels Sunday, but it was all a wild goose chase. The Conservatives chartered a pre-Second World War DC-3 and spent five hours searching the North Atlantic for foreign fishing boats, which they say are raping East Coast fish stocks. They scoured hundreds of square miles of iceberg-dotted ocean, but spotted only one Canadian naval vessel and a sealing ship. But John Lundrigan, member for Gander- Twillingate, who had suggested the search, said that just because they spotted no ships doesn't mean they're not there. Fishing fleets from other countries, particularly the So- viet Union, are working the Labrador and Newfoundland coasts scooping up tons of fish without giving them a chance to spawn, he said. Mr. Stanfield, on a three- day tour of Newfoundland, spent almost two hours crossing the island by helicopter before starting the Atlantic adventure. He left the west coast city of Corner Brook early Sunday morning and had logged about seven hours air time when the day was over. He made some good- humored cracks about Mr. Lundrigan after no foreign boats were sited during a trip from Gander up the Labrador coast and then south to St. John's near the southeastern tip of Newfoundland. The presence of foreign fish- ing fleets off the East Coast is of growing concern, especially in Newfoundland where so many depend on the fishing in- dustry. The Conservatives have been pressing for extension of Canada's territorial limits to 200 miles offshore instead of the current 12. Mercury may have system's 33rd moon PASADENA, Calif. (AP) A tiny moving object which scientists say may be a moon circling Mercury has thus far eluded Mariner 10's powerful cameras. The cameras scanned the neighborhood of Mercury Sunday, seeking the mysterious object which was detected by Mariner's ultraviolet instruments. If the object is a moon, it would be the first satellite discovered at Mercury and the 33rd known moon in the solar system of nine planets. The camera hunt was intended to produce the first visible evidence of. the unidentified object. The ultraviolet radiation from which was first seen last Wednesday, is not visible to the human eye or to cameras.

W. Fulbright. Kissinger believes that the United States is politically and morally committed to giving long-term military'and economic aid to South Vietnam. Under the Paris agreement, Kissinger said in a letter to Senator Edward Kennedy (Dem. "the United States committed itself to strengthening the conditions which made the ceasefire pos- sible and to the goal of the South Vietnamese people's right to self-determination." However, Fulbright (Dem. Ark.) responded that the Paris "agreements aren't commitments, they are only a declaration of intent." "They are not a moral or le- gal obligation until Congress passes them. "The commitment is only an expression of policy of this Fulbright said. Kennedy also noted that the Paris agreement was never submitted to the Senate as a treaty for ratification and Kis- singer, in hit letter, acknowl- edged that the United States "has no bilateral written com- mitment to the government of the Republic of Vietnam." Kissinger told Kennedy that with its commitments in mind the administration continues "to provide the Republic of Vietnam the means necessary for its self-defence and for Its economic viability." Kennedy said the adminis- tration's Indochina programs will cost about billion this year. "In light of the pressing needs and inflation at home and other urgent priorities overseas, the administration's course in Indochina borders on fiscal irresponsibility and is contrary to the new directions set by Congress last Kennedy said in a statement. dates running for the 10 seats in the Halifax-Dartmouth area. The Liberals held nine of the seats in the last legislature. Elsewhere during the week- end, Liberal Premier Gerald Regan and Progressive Con- servative Leader John Bu- chanan used helicopters to fly into a dozen areas. However, Jeremy Akerman, New Democratic Party leader, stayed home Saturday, addressing a rally in his Cape Breton East constituency. The three leaders planned to stay close to their ridings today but Premier Regan has scheduled a brief appearance in Lunenburg County.
